In the summer, autumn and at any other time of the year weQuite often we think about protection from the sun. We can protect ourselves, but we must not forget about our houses. In addition to blinds and curtains, which we used to use in the interior, there are also sun protection systems used outside. It is believed that the use of street awnings or blinds is a more effective solution, since thus preventing the heating of window panes. And as a consequence - there is no transfer of stored heat inside the room. We propose to consider several types of marquises andOutdoor blinds, which can be used to protect from the sun of a dacha or a country house. At any time of the year, even in winter, there will be no problem to collect them before the warm sunny days. Types of awnings Awnings on windows can be of different types, with or without decorative elements. Outwardly they can become both a color continuation of the facade of the house, and it's great to play in contrast. Managed these canopies with a special cord, which can be installed both outside and inside the room. For convenience, sometimes an electric motor is used, so that it is possible to open or close all the awnings at once. Marzoletts Marcicletts are suitable for highWindows. Their upper part is parallel to the frame, and the lower one forms a certain angle, which allows to protect the entire window from the sun, without completely covering it with the material. That is, nothing will prevent you from admiring the view from the window. Basket awnings Basket awnings we are used toSee on the facades of hotels. They can be used on arched and rectangular windows, complementing their appearance with classical architectural forms. And of course, they can be folded and unwrapped whenever they want. Ruslan Kirnichansky, architect: - When choosing a canopy, you need to determine what purpose you are pursuing. For example, if you want to block out sunlight, but do not close the view from the windows, then the Marquettelettes, which can be adjusted according to the movement of the sun, are best for this purpose. If the goal - to create a blackout and protect the windows from the rain, fit basket awnings. The terraces are good in that they organize a recreation area in the shade on the site and they can be mounted to the walls. But do not forget that with the onset of cold weather the awning needs to be removed, otherwise the next summer season will have to buy others. Terraced marquises Similar designs canProtect from the sun, not only the interior. There are special terraces awnings, performing the functions of a canopy. Under it you can comfortably spend time in the fresh air. If the design of a country house does not involve the presence of a terrace, it can easily be replaced with awnings. Moreover, in rainy weather or in winter time such a construction is assembled and is not an obstacle to the small amount of sunlight that nature pleases us at this time. Anna Samokhina, Hunter Douglas: - Window awnings to 65% reduce the flow of solar heat from the south side of the building and up to 77% from the western side. This is quite high indicators, for interior blinds and curtains, they are much lower. It is not necessary to use them on all windows of the house, it is quite appropriate to install marquises only on that window, which receives an excessive amount of light at a certain time of the day. In the assembled form they are absolutely not striking. It is also important to consider that the awnings made of light-colored fabric reflect more sunlight.
